She came over to the US as a teenager with her brother Thomas we think (and possibly a sister that died on the voyage.) They ended up in Chicago and she married James Healy sometime around 1880. She's in the first and second photos on this page - http://phoebeholmes.com/healy_family_photographs.htm - the first one is her as an old woman the second one is her at a younger age (we also have a tin type of her in a plaid dress circa 1860's from the look of the dress style). She at one point had short hair which she hated, but her hair had been cut off due to illness and she was very self-conscious about that and wore little hairpieces to disguise this.
If you have any information about this Mary O'Hern, please let me know - thanks!
